Kiganjo Mill is located in Kiganjo Division, Kiambu County. It’s an area with classic, rich volcanic soilsand 1000 – 1200mm of rain annually. Kiganjo Mill is part of the Thiririka Farmers’ Co-operative Society. Thiririka FCS was established in 1996 and named after the Thiririka River. The co-op includes the Kiganjo, Githembe and Ndundu Miils.

Kiganjo Mill takes in coffee from around 600 members who collectively farm 300 hectares of coffee trees.  Total output from the mill is roughly 435 metric tonnes per year. All the coffee is handpicked early in the morning and at the mill for processing by the afternoon. Using water from the Thirirka River, the coffee goes through a carefully managed wet process before being dried on raised beds. All the drying coffee is covered with shade cloth during the harsh midday sun and with canvas or plastic covers at any sign of rain. Once dry, it is taken to the dry mill for final processing.
